Samsung's experiment made consumer product, the Galaxy Note Edge, is already available in international unlocked versions and through AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The next American carrier to bite on the device with the curved screen is US Cellular, which will start selling the Note Edge on Wednesday. A standard two-year contract will get you the phone for a hefty $399 (which is actually in line with AT&T and Sprint's contract pricing), or you can split the payments up into undisclosed bits with no money down.

SanDisk Catches Up To The Competition With A New 3.0-Ready Dual MicroUSB/USB Mobile OTG Stick

Dual microUSB/USB OTG sticks may not be brand new anymore, but they're still not nearly as prevalent as more traditional flash drives. Nevertheless, there are plenty of options out there from the big brands and lesser-known folks alike. A year ago, Leef Bridge announced a model with support for USB 3.0. A year later, SanDisk is now doing the same.

The SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 is a slightly redesigned version of the previous model, only it now handles faster transfer speeds.

Garmin Shows Off The Fēnix 3 And Epix Smartwatches, For Those Who Want A Sportier Alternative To Wear And Gear

You might not know it if you don't regularly peruse the less-traveled sections of your local electronics store, but Garmin and its competitors have been making impressively sophisticated GPS watches for years. They only escaped the "smartwatch" label because the buzzword hadn't been invented yet. Now Garmin, like Timex, is approaching the smartwatch from the other end, adding more and more features onto a design that's been present for quite a while.

Polaroid Announces Zip Instant Mobile Ink-Free Printer, Soon Shipping Socialmatic Camera

The current era may be captured by smartphones, but the previous one was caught on film by Polaroid. The company's cameras printed out photos just after they were captured, with photographers shaking the results to help them dry (a gesture Polaroid says can actually damage the picture these days).

A poorly-named successor aimed at hip, young smartphone users—the Socialmatic—has been in development to introduce this functionality to a new generation. Polaroid announced the Android-powered camera at last year's CES.

[CES 2015] Hands-On With The LG G Flex 2 - Faster, Better, And... Smaller?

LG's just announced the G Flex 2 here at CES, and we had a chance to go hands-on with the company's next curvy smartphone. First, though, let's get the technical bits out in front.

The G Flex 2 is one of the first officially announced phones from a major manufacturer to have a Snapdragon 810 processor, an octa-core chip in ARM's BIG.little arrangement, with 4 high-power cores offering speed when you need it, and four lower-power cores suited for standby tasks and other low-overhead operations.

Google Announces Cast For Audio, A Chromecast-Style Standard For Streaming Directly To Connected Speakers

Google's inexpensive Chromecast is already popular for streaming audio from sources like Play Music and Pandora to your television, but now it looks like the company wants a more specific approach for music. To that end Google has announced "Cast for audio," an audio-only version of the system that streams directly to connected and certified speaker systems, no extra hardware required. The first compatible speakers should reach the market in the spring of this year.

Dell's Mega-Thin Venue 8 Tablet Is Now Available For $399.99 From Best Buy

Dell has been making Android tablets for a while, but none of them have been terribly interesting. The new Venue 8, on the other hand, stands out in a sea of freakishly similar slates. This is the thinnest tablet in the world at only 6mm (a whole one-tenth of a millimeter thinner than the iPad Air 2) and it showcases some neat camera tricks thanks to its Intel hardware. It's been vaporware so far, but now you can get one at Best Buy for $399.99.

NVIDIA Announces The New Tegra X1 Mobile Chipset With 256-Core Maxwell GPU

NVIDIA has been the first few pebbles of the landslide that is CES for the last few years, and 2015 is no different. To kick off the world's biggest consumer tech show, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang started with mobile. The company announced its successor to the Tegra K1 mobile processor, the Tegra X1. This chip includes an octa-core 64-bit CPU married to a 256-core GPU. And that second chip is the killer: it's based on the same architecture as the latest full-sized NVIDIA desktop graphics cards, Maxwell.
